How to Shoot Your Passion: Techniques and Ideas for Social, Environmental and Cause-Related Photography
Photographer and conservationist Cristina Mittermeier uses her camera as a passport to document the complex issues where conservation of wild nature and human needs intersect. Her subjects range from indigenous people of the Amazon to climate change and ocean conservation. Cristina uses her passion for photography to influence the fate of our planet’s natural resources and is now a Sony Artisan of Imagery, one of only seven photographers representing Sony’s new cameras.
Among many other awards and recognitions she has been named 2010 Nature’s Best Conservation Photographer of the Year and is the recipient of the 2010 North American Nature Photographers Association Mission Award. Outdoor Photographer magazine selected her as one of the 40 most influential nature photographers of our generation for her contributions to the creation of the discipline known as conservation photography.
She has edited 20 coffee table books on conservation for CEMEX and this year she will author her first book with National Geographic, Sublime Nature: Photographs that Awe and Inspire. For more details go to her website: http://www.cristinamittermeier.com.
